Tomorrow, Saturday, November 25, Nigerian Afro-hip hop artiste, Oritsefemi will be getting married to his lover, Nabila Fash.
The grand event, which the couple has done well to create enough buzz for, will be held at the Ark Event Centre, Block 1, Plot 2 Okunde Blue Water Drive, Lekki Right Side, Lagos. Four cows to be slaughtered for the event were seen tied down this morning. The invitation card has been out since October while sales of the 40,000 naira Aso Ebi has also kicked off.
For Oritsefemi and Nabila Fash, theirs is the quintessential celebrity wedding. Nabila told media people a few weeks ago that their wedding will be like a carnival or a concert, because she is getting married to a man of the people.
Oritsefemi and his wife have never been more wrong. Tomorrow, most people may not even know they are getting married. Most celebrities may attend and even if bloggers pick up the story, most readers won’t see it.
This is because another wedding will be taking place that is likely to eclipse their own. Tomorrow in Cape Town, South Africa, Banky W and Adesua Etomi will be having their white wedding. Last week, the couple had their traditional wedding in Nigeria, which had the crème de la crème of the Entertainment industry in attendance. We have still not seen the end of reports from that event as the media bombard us with one thing or the other, including the Agbada Ebuka wore!
With the preparations for, and money spent on Oritsefemi’s wedding, it will be unfortunate if the event is completely eclipsed by Banky W and Adesua who are set to storm the airwaves tomorrow.
Sadly, many celebrities may not get to witness the wedding event of the people’s’ couple as they will be attending banky W and Adesua’s wedding in Cape Town. But the many fans of Oritsefemi will likely Soren the Lekki venue for their party.
